Dir. Robert Lepage (Canada: 1998), 85 min.

In October 1970, Montreal actress Sophie appears in a Feydeau farce at the Osaka World’s Fair. Back in Montreal, her boyfriend Michel watches the October Crisis on TV and sees Canadian Prime Minister Trudeau declare the War Measures Act. The Canadian Army patrols Montreal streets. Michel is immersed in politics, while Sophie rejects the amorous advances of her co-star, becomes friendly with a blind translator, and passes an evening with frivolous Canadian embassy official Walter and his wife Patricia. Meanwhile, in Montreal, Michael plots terrorist activities.

All foreign language films will be shown with subtitles. We proudly offer captioning of all films at special request on Saturdays at 12:00pm if given notice 48 hours in advance of the regular screening.

Please note that our last free Saturday screening will take place Saturday June 17. After fourteen years on Queen Street West the Stephen Bulger Gallery will be moving to 1356/1358 Dundas Street West. We have enjoyed many years of programming free Saturday screenings in our unique CAMERA theatre and hope you have been able to enjoy a film or two! Thank you for your loyalty and we hope you will come visit our new exhibition space this fall.
